Meet the Buyer is back – Are you looking for new business?

Meet the Buyer is returning in 2018 on Thursday 22nd November!

Meet the Buyer events are an excellent opportunity for local small and medium sized businesses to get past the gatekeeper and talk to those in a position to buy their products or services.

The event matches the goods and services offered by businesses with the current buying requirements of participating purchasing teams, to ensure supplier businesses meet with companies actively seeking the service they offer, making the ‘pitching’ process more efficient. This year there are 9 purchasing teams participating.

  • When: Thursday 22nd November 2018 , 9.30am – 4.00pm
  • Where: Rochdale Town Hall, The Esplanade, Rochdale
  • Charge: Free
  • Why: To give you the opportunity to meet buying teams from a range of purchasers with a view to achieving new contracts.
